The Wellington Backyard garden Club will meet on Monday, Jan. 9, 2023, at the Wellington Community Middle, located at 12150 W. Forest Hill Blvd. A presentation by Will Gurney, superintendent of landscape for the Village of Wellington, will begin at 10 a.m.
Gurney’s presentation, “Using Indigenous Crops in the Community Landscape,” will element some of the landscape plantings and get the job done he has finished to incorporate native vegetation in Wellington’s public landscape. He will also talk about the worth of adding cover trees wherever achievable and their optimistic affect on the setting.
Gurney’s education and learning, working experience and personalized inspiration uniquely qualify him as the village’s superintendent of landscape. He has been effective in business management and challenge planning and has a robust turf grass history. He has owned and managed a successful turf and landscape business, is properly versed in wetland ecology and conservation, and is an ISA-accredited arborist and licensed master naturalist.
The group is invited to sign up for the club for coffee and a plant raffle starting at 9:30 a.m. People are requested to test in at the visitor desk. To reserve a spot, get in touch with Maria Wolfe at [email protected]
